Gallery of Art and Creative Writing
Projects from our Community
Members of our community continually enlighten us with creative writing and artistic endeavors that support the Harris Center's mission. For example, one young woman recently sent us an excellent essay. Another supporter makes powerful collages that represent various aspects of eating disorders. Based on these and other gifts, we have added a gallery of art and creative writing to our Web site. To enter the gallery, please click on the projects below:
A poem by Melissa Hancock
Building Bridges, Erecting Walls
A monologue by Rhea Psereckis
A poem by Margot Sampson
A poem by Libby Taft
Eating Disorders in Breath, Eyes, Memory; Dreaming in Cuban and How the Garcia Girls Lost Their Accents
An essay by Elizabeth Carten.
We are actively collecting additions to our gallery. If you have an original project - a poem, story, essay, photograph, drawing or other piece of work - that expresses your views on eating disorders, we invite you to share it with us. Please feel free to contact us to discuss your ideas or to submit a project to our Web site gallery. To make it possible for us to display your creative pieces on our Web site, we ask that you send your written work either in Microsoft Word or in the body of an e-mail message. We'll accept your graphics as JPEG or GIF attachments. If you prefer that we not post your name along with your creative work, just let us know; we will certainly respect your privacy.
We look forward to receiving many meaningful and well-executed pieces of work.
Note: The Harris Center's Art and Creative Writing Gallery is for educational and personal use only and does not engage in commercial activity.
